COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Charleville Double Chocolate Belgian Quad.

It’s difficult to express love’s nuances much like the complexity of this Belgian style chocolate quad. You might use a box of chocolate to express your love; we use it to demonstrate our passion for great beer.

(22oz bomber thanks to BlackSwan) rich deep ruby colored pour, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of chocolate, Belgian yeast, cream, and a bit funky. Taste of milk chocolate, malt balls, creamy and really delicious.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours dark brown with a mid-sized, off-white head. The bouquet is quite chocolaty with additional notes of cola and dried, dark fruits. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with sheepish carbonation. Like the nose, the flavor is plenty chocolaty and sweet with loads of dried dark fruits. Finishes, sweet and chocolaty with a kiss of vanilla. Big-time thanks to phaleslu for shipping this world class beer my way!

Tasted 8/19/11. 22oz bomber. Unactivated pour leaves a ton of dark sediment in the bottle. Pours opaque brown with a webbed khaki head. Aromas of Cherry 7Up, Sugary lemon and lime candy flavor. Mild chocolate and fudge nuance. Full bodied and super sweet! The palate screams fudgy chocolate icing. Overwhelming sweetness from the malts and the other ingredients. Nice blend of the Belgian yeast and dark fruity esters, chocolate and fudgy flavors. The alcohol is muted and gets lost in the cola, syrupy sweetness. Yeah, the sweetness is a tad overt. Even at this age. A crazy banana ester pops up in the finish, and actually blends seamlessly with the melted chocolate ice cream flavor. Crazy.

Bottle shared by Derek. Pours a deep black with purple and crimson highlights and a thin beige head. Aromas of slightly alkaline cocoa powder. Soft cocoa and chocolate. Great aromas. Tastes like hot chocolate, warm cocoa powder, smooth and sweet. Very nice. A touch of warmth on the finish, spicy with a bit of yeast and more cocoa.

deyholla (7156) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle thanks to a generous BA, shared with others. Poured a slightly hazy dark brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of chocolates with a particular note of sweet bakers chocolate coming through as well as some milk chocolate. Flavor was similarly full of chocolate that started with bakers chocolate but ended with sweet milk chocolate. Very thick on the tongue.

jrallen34 (3485) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
pours a dark brown that’s a bit watery, light tan head, ok ring... the aroma is outstanding, smells like a trappist quad mixed with Dr. Pepper and chocolate, additional notes of dark fruits, unique twist on a quad... the taste is not as successful, comes across a bit fake, summed up simply as chocolate soda, a little too carbonated, but drinkable incredibly so for something that is 10.5%, mostly chocolate... not up to the hype but very solid

(sampled at Dak’s Memorial Day tasting. I think Dak broke this open!). Pour dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is all milk chocolate . The flavor follows suit with sweet chocolate and some tootsie roll. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Slightly bitter finish, but balanced. Pretty nice beer with nice chocolate flavor, but the hype machine is in full tilt for this one.
